    Differences beween IE9 and FF 13.0.1

    mytaxsite.co.uk CommunityMVP

      I have noticed that when you view these forums in FF 13.0.1, the posters name does not include his total number of posts and date of joining.  For example this is what I see under my name in FF 13.0.1:

       

      2012-07-08_0156.png

       

      The same item in IE9 looks like this:

       

      2012-07-08_0157.png

       

      You can clearly see the number of posts and date of joining in the second picture.

       

      Has anyone else noticed this?

          Looks okay in Firefox from here.

          What'ya bet it's an issue with something old still being in your local cache.  Purge, purge, PURGE I say!

            That's interesting because I looked at this link:

             

            http://forums.adobe.com/message/4544108#4544108

             

            And only your name has all the info but everybody  else's name is completely basic.  This is what your info shows at that particular link:

                New Firefox plug-in that considers small numbers inconsequential?

                 

                I seem to be seeing things as they should be EXCEPT IN Safari, where I see what you describe.

                 

                Only the Great Carboni has a post count visible to Safari users.  You'd think I paid extra.

                  Claudio,

                   

                  I see the data for every participant except the original poster:

                   

                  It is the same for me, on Chrome.

                   

                  The lack of statistics for the OP seemed to have coincided with the new skins, at least for me.

                    I think I've figured it out.  It may have to do with whether you've logged-in to the forums.

                     

                    Safari was the only browser I did not have logged-in to the forums.  Once I logged in it showed the numbers for everyone.

                     

                    Why my stuff is visible even when logged-out...  People are always telling me they can see right through me.

                      Yes.  That is it.  Thanks for clearing this up.

                        Very confusing; here is what I see

                        Internet Explorer 9 (signed in):

                        ie9.PNG

                        In both browsers the information is missing only in the first post, including the Correct answer embedded in it.

                         

                        P.S. I run CCleaner on a regular basis, so the caches of each browser should be clear.

                          Does Ccleaner clears all cookies from your system?  You can prove this by logging into adobe forums and allowing your browser to "remember" you. Then you can run CCleaner to clear everything.  when this is done try going back into Adobe forums and see if the browser still remember your log-in details.  In FF you get a prompt when you start filling in your details.

                            As a career computer engineer with 36 years experience (geez, that's a long time) I advise against running any "cleaner" application.  CCleaner has a lot of fans, but I wouldn't trust it.  There is absolutely no reason you need to "clean" your system beyond occasional deletion of the files in the TEMP folder, which is easily done by hand.  It's a complete fabrication that a Windows registry needs to be "cleaned" - it does not.  I am running the same Windows installation I put in late in 2009, and it's light and fast as ever.

                             

                            I don't fault those of you who feel you get value from CCleaner.  I just wouldn't use it myself.

                              I don't think Pat was talking about cleaning the Windows Registry.  He was mainly talking about cleaning the clutter created by Windows system all over the place which we can't remember where they all are.

                               

                              CCleaner is pretty good at cleaning this clutter and you will be surprised to find that after using CCleaner you will have about 2GB more disk space since you have been using the same system since 2009.

                               

                              I agree with you that nobody should touch Windows Registry because it doesn't affect the performance of modern systems.  Modern systems are pretty fast as they are and they don't need any assistance from software tools.

                                CCleaner can clear cookies when that option is checked.  A list of exceptions will retain cookies of choice.  I keep most login cookies on my home computer.

                                 

                                CCleaner not only cleans wasted disk space by Windows, but also various 3rd-party applications - each optional of course.

                                 

                                CCleaner also has a "registry cleaner" option, which some people say is the most "benign" of all such cleaners.  I never use it, and I would never recommend to anyone to use it.
